To say the least, this man will be missed. Always a pleasure to talk to, a gentleman in every sense of the word. One thing that I knew for sure when I started making rods was that I wasn't going to make my own ferrules. Turning to Bailey to fill that need was the only choice for me to make, and I have never been disappointed in his work. The iconic Super-Z ferrule has always been my choice for all the obvious reasons and I know that Steve will seamlessly carry on in that tradition as did his mentor Bailey.
My sincerest condolences to his family and all who considered Bailey his friend. He will be greatly missed.

Most of the important long-lived structures in our lives, like bridges and traditional fly-fishing for instance,
have quiet, strong foundation pillars.
Bailey was one of those.
